    Hello and welcome!

    Yes, it's possible, but it's far easier to install Windows first then Linux because Windows is very picky about where it goes on a system.

    Also, it may be appropriate for me to mention installing xp as a virtual machine.

    I have been running Windows XP Pro under openSUSE versions 10.2 thru 11.3 for several years. It runs great! VirtualBox is a free download. Try it.

    If you are wanting to install VirtualBox as suggested above by edroid, you can go to your main menu in Opensuse and go to System->Administration->Install/Remove Software. This is YAST the software manager and installer. Look for Virtual Box and install it. There are numerous tutorials on using it, just google VirtualBox on Opensuse.

    There is Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop which has a 60 day evaluation version. After that, no patches or updates are available unless you pay an annual fee for updates and technical support.

    SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11 Evaluation Download

    Opensuse is free to download and use.
